But I wanted to Thank EVERYONE for helping me this past month and to talk a little bit about how things have been going since.https://vimeo.com/84163522Also if you'd like to follow my Family Photography work -https://www.facebook.com/saylerphotoshttp://saylerphotos.com/
DonationsSo it has gotten to this point...I would appreciate any donations regardless of how small to go into my Photography.3 months with no jobs for my husband and I and it's getting harder and darker to see a "light" at the end of the tunnel, or ...an end to the tunnel.I'm not expecting anyone to pay my rent, just hoping that with a camera my photography will be good enough to help us as I seem to be no good at anything else! (Other than taking care of dogs)I've been volunteering at a Christian radio station taking pledges for those who donate to the station and I figured.....what the heck, I might as well give it a try. It's not like I can be given less than what I have? No one can donate -$ or take more from what we've got soooo... Here it is.I'm sorry everyone.I surrender.If anyone would like to know more about my situation or the amount I'm reaching towards feel free to e-mail me.As well as if you've got any ideas on how I can maybe make extra money, All ideas, thoughts, pr
MovedBack to Minnesota!I am now living in Duluth once again, and probably won't have as many shoots with other photographers since I am in the middle of nowhere.Hopefully, I will once again shoot with some of my favorite photographers but as of now it is not a priority as we have yet to fully settle in our new/old city, and new apartment.Might be taking some self portraits whenever I get a hold of a camera I can borrow, thankfully before I left DC/MD/VA I shot with a lot of great photographers like John P. Dunnigan and will have new pictures from them to share in the meanwhile.GOOD NEWS! I HAVE A DOG! There was just no way I could keep living without a dog specially after leaving the dog farm. So I proudly present......TOBI!!I hope you're all having a terrific month, Happy late Halloween! And Happy upcoming Thanksgiving!P.S Don't spend too much

ActiveOkay - How do I start...I woke up this morning with nothing in mind and I sat in the living room for most of the morning and then out of the nowhere it hit me - A storyline for the photo book.That's not the best part, as I space off thinking about all the possibilities I am staring at the window "Wow...that's amazing light" DING! 3 hours of self portraits later! I AM SO EXCITED TO SHARE WITH ALL OF YOU!I was completely revived, I had the same feeling I did a couple of years ago when I started taking self portraits and I was so nervous/excited afterwards to look at them, so I would clean up the mess, shower, eat, and make the environment absolutely perfect and suitable for what could be the review of - AN AMAZING SHOOT!And it was. So stick around ALSO! (Aren't I just a ball of good news today?)I have decided to make another video This time next week?The idea of me talking nonstop about nothing doesn't excite anyone, so, please ask me any questionsyou would

ShenanigansSo it all comes down to this week, after what seems like an eternity of TALKING about it....we are finally MOVING!I'm excited and nervous....but mostly happy that we are on our first move together as a family and cannot wait to see what it brings for us Also, with a new state.....new photographers and as soon as we've settled I plan on working with my favorite photographer!! And so proud to say, a really good friend.Hoping to start March with a whole bunch of images to share!And that's that. Here's a video I took of my adorable kitten Oreo.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wtz8SIlh1HsOne more thing....I've been thinking of starting a Facebook page! I don't know if its too soon? Let me know what you guys think.
Donations - Day 3Wow what a weekend!Thanks everyone for all the help and support over the past 2 days I got more help than I could of ever imagined and I'm hoping to make tomorrow the last day to donate! It'll certainly be an amazing ending to this whole year.I want to let everyone know that I will NOT disappoint and as you guys have been donating It has encouraged me even more every minute to advertise myself and really establish my photography!With the help of my family as well, I've managed to get the business out and I'm now working ona watermark, name, business cards, photo book/print ideas and MORE MORE MORE Advertising in my area!I will be aiming towards family friend photography (Kids/Wedding/Portraits) Mainly because that's what I will get paid for, and not artistic nudes. HOWEVER I will not lose my artistic touch and will certainly keep working with models and keep doing self portraits but I'll consider it more of a hobby if I'm able to take off as a family photographer! And in the futur
Ribbit.Hope everyone's doing well, getting closer to August and I just can't believe how fast we got through half the year already...and how fast Virginia has become my home.My husband and I keep working towards finding our own place, getting jobs, paying hospital bill off etc. It all sounds a lot harder than it's been, I've got some amazing people around me making my life easier with their support and love.I want to thank everyone who responded to what might have seemed like a cry for help in my last journal, I appreciate you taking the time to put me in your thoughts and reaching out to help. I've gotten some great and interesting ideas, from maybe making a book of my self portraits, to of course selling prints, starting a donation pool, kickstarter, etc etc..Still not sure on how I feel about donations, or other ideas like it. I feel like I can't just receive money, without giving something in return.However I have answered to the idea of selling prints, and I've made that option avail
